​Winter driving

Ice, snow, slippery highways — driving in winter conditions can be both challenging and frustrating. Here are some helpful tips to keep you and your loved ones safer on the road.

Be prepared

It's important to be prepared if you have to drive snowy, winter roads. Along with slowing down, it's important to have good winter tires and check them regularly as low temperatures can reduce tire pressure. Pack a winter emergency kit in your vehicle in case you get stranded or stuck. Your kit should include:

  • First aid kit
  • Emergency food and water
  • Spare warm clothing
  • Flares or matches and lighter, candles
  • Shovel and traction mat, sand or kitty litter (non-clumping)
  • Battery jumper cables
